I am excited to share that I spent some of my 10 hours for Conflict Resolution Month creating a new conflict resolution curriculum component for our youth development program at cityWILD!
As part of our program students work on building their outdoor skills. To track the skills they have learned, we have a tiered system. Students can “level up” from basic to intermediate to advanced in a variety of outdoor skills. For example, if students are interested in rock climbing, they first earn a rock climbing “basic” that shows that they have the basic knowledge and skills to move on to intermediate climbing. They then earn their intermediate and ultimately their advanced, with the skill level and knowledge increasing at each level.
I duplicated that model this month and created a Conflict Resolution Basic and Intermediate that students can earn along with their outdoor skills. The basic checkoff card looks like this:
We’ll be adding a Conflict Resolution Advanced soon and hope to have all of our participating students earn their levels in Conflict Resolution this year!
